Sunday September 15th 2013, Psychedelic Film Night: Midnight Cowboy (John Schlesinger, 1969, USA, in English). Door opens at 20:00, film begins at 21:00

Dustin Hoffman is Ratso Rizzo, a sleazy small-time conman who dreams of a better life. Jon Voight is Joe Buck, a hunky naive Texan cowboy and gigolo, out searching for love and money amongst the wealthy and love-starved older women of New York. Joe Buck thinks he’s God’s gift to women, but everyone else thinks he’s a joke. Both try and make a life for themselves and end up kicking together in the diners, bedsit and sleazy cinemas of downtown New York, looking for money and human warmth.. “Midnight Cowboy” won an Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay, and boasts two incredible lead performances. It’s also a frank and provocative look at the realities of life in 1960s New York, from the rat-infested bedsits to the glamorous art parties.

Film night at Joe’s Garage, warm and cozy cinema! Doors open at 8pm, film begins at 9pm, free entrance. You want to play a movie, let us know: joe [at] squat [dot] net
